Chair of Rainforest Rescue Board, Madeleine Faught
Thanks to you, regenerated Lot 46 in the Daintree has continued to be hailed as a success story in terms of large scale rainforest regeneration, not only in Australia but also across the world.
At a recent local rainforest awareness raising event near the Rainforest Rescue HQ, the ‘18th Annual Big Scrub Rainforest Day’, Dr Robert Kooyman, Rainforest Rescue’s Scientific Adviser, updated the community on the success of Lot 46 as it continues to thrive.
Dr Kooyman has been involved with protected area and conservation management for over 35 years and his research and publications are world renowned. Robert believes that the “… reforestation of this important lowland area has significantly and measurably improved habitat values and protected and enhanced World Heritage values in the landscape.”
He has also credited the regeneration of Lot 46, from severely damaged property to thriving rainforest now as “…one of the best global examples of full property restoration in a critically important area with very high biodiversity values.”
The success of Lot 46 is your success.
Our colorful Rainforest Rescue stall at this event also attracted a steady stream of people full of enthusiasm seeking more information on how to be involved, and make a difference through Lot 46’s success. The Rainforest Rescue team kept the supporters especially happy with back to back table tennis games!
